Ghosts of the Past: Nazi-Looted Art and Its Legacies
Dates: February 20-21, 2015
Location: Columbia University
Co-organized by Columbia University’s Department of Art History and Archaeology and Deutsches Haus in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut New York and the Jewish Museum, Ghosts of the Past will bring together an international group of historians, art historians, scholars of provenance research, museum curators, and journalists. Beyond the specific case of Hildebrand and Cornelius Gurlitt’s long hidden treasures, the conference will explore the manifold legacies of Nazi-looted art that continue to haunt our present.
The conference will open with a keynote lecture by Prof. Olaf Peters of the University of Halle-Wittenberg at the Jewish Museum (1109 Fifth Avenue) on Thursday, February 19, 2015, 6:30 pm.
